What Is SISS Capital?
SISS Capital is a digital financial platform and community designed to increase the financial wellness of Black Women and families across the global diaspora. Building upon the success of its brother organization, BREAUX Capital, SISS is fusing culture, education, asset accumulation, and investing to provide a new approach to addressing the economic marginalization African people have experienced in the financial services industry and traditional social institutions.
Why Are Black Men Founding An Enterprise For Black Women?
Because Black Women requested it from us. Over the past four years since launching BREAUX Capital for Black Men, there has been a consistent demand from Black Women to see a brand and platform that leverages a similar business model and mission, but specifically for Black Women. Beyond this, we believe that Black Women DESERVE their own space for financial empowerment and that there are amazing opportunities for SISS and BREAUX Capital to synergize for the ultimate benefit of the Black families across the globe!
What Does It Mean That SISS Capital Cooperatively Owned?
At the core, it means that SISS Capital will be owned and operated by its Members. This will translate to Black Women making up the majority of the Board of Directors and steering the construction of organizational by-laws.
How Does SISS Capital Define Financial Wellness?
According to our extensive conversations across the country, and our research conducted in partnership with a grant from the National Science Foundation, we have grown to understand that financial wellness can be broken down into four interrelated components: 1. Being able to take care of your basic needs 2. Being able to handle a $1000 emergency - Legal Situation? Medical? Roundtrip Flight? 3. Being able to take advantage of financial opportunities as they arise ( timely investing) 4. Your closest friends (2-3) being able to take care of their needs, a $1000 emergency, while investing at will.
What’s In It For Me?
For SISS Co-Owners, you are granted access to equity and the potential to share in revenue-generating opportunities via dividends, the opportunity to receive a “friends & family” equity investment from SISS Capital and access to beginner & intermediate level business startup education. You also have access to an internationally curated network of Black Women who want to see you succeed.
What Are The Differences Between SISS Co-Owner and SISS Emeritus.
SISS Co-Owner is the premier tier of Membership, where members receive: an ownership stake within SISS Capital access to a fraternal community and discounts to SISS sponsored events, automated asset accumulation, and the opportunity to manage and operate portions of SISS Capital’s business operation. SISS Emeritus is for those not so much interested in building SISS Capital from the inside, but they rock with the vision of Black Men uniting for a monumentally righteous cause. And they may want to automate their savings each month, or/and get the necessary skills and knowledge to put their money to work for them. SISS Emeritus Members may also see the value in having a financial coaching session with a member of the SISS Capital operational team.
Is SISS Capital For Black Women Only?
Yes, we are for Black Women. Also, we are an open-minded organization that will not discriminate against trans-humans that identify as Black Women presently. The reason we reserve Membership in our Family for Black Women is because we were founded with the idea of promoting safe and empowering spaces for Black Women to engage with one another.
Is SISS Capital For Profit Enterprise or Nonprofit?
SISS Capital is a purpose-driven for-profit organization. We are firm believers that we don’t have to sacrifice money for the sake of doing well or sacrifice socially conscious activity for the sake of making money. We can do both at the same time.
Is My Information Safe?
Yes. We use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer encryption, which is bank-level security. Combined with intelligent IP blocking on our security systems which detects intruders and blocks them across before they even try to attack. And we WILL NOT sell your information to outside parties.
How Long Will My Membership Last?
We’ve designed each style of Membership to make sure that it benefits the member. We hope to have you as a member as long as we can and our aim is to be such an immutable institution that you’ll be referring your great-grandchildren to SISS Capital.
